Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

Have More Injury Questions? We’re Here to Help

Below are questions that commonly arise after a Buffalo, NY accident involving serious injuries. We appreciate that you may have additional questions related to your situation.

We always welcome you to contact our office for complimentary consultations with one of our Buffalo, NY personal injury lawyers.

The decision to hire an attorney is a personal decision. However, from an economic perspective, retaining your own lawyer may dramatically increase the value of your case. A study conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) revealed that people who hired a lawyer received 3.5 times more compensation for their case compared to those who handled the matter on their own. Another IRC report “Auto Injuries: Claiming Behavior and Its Impact on Insurance Costs,” revealed that 85% of insurance company settlements related to accidents were made to people who had an attorney representing them.

Our law firm handles each case on a contingency fee basis. Our personal injury legal fees are typically 1/3 (33.33%) of the gross recovery via settlement or trial in an injury.

For example, in a truck accident case involving multiple broken bones that settles for $1,000,000 the legal fee would typically be $333,333.33. If there are any costs involved (such as court costs, deposition fees, medical records), these would be deducted from the balance and the client would receive the remainder.

When you retain our firm, you will receive a written retainer agreement setting forth all legal fees and expenses related to your case. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible when it comes to your legal representation so you have a clear understanding of the legal process and all fees and costs involved.

Personal injury is a broad area of the law that is designed to provide economic compensation to a person who is injured due to the negligence of another person or corporation. Sometimes referred to as ‘tort law’, the law entitles an individual that suffers injuries to recover compensation for all past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, permanent disability and lost wages. While this area of the law can be complex, most cases involve injuries sustained in car accidents, truck accidents or motorcycle accidents.

In the situation where a person dies in an accident, defective product or due to medical negligence, the surviving family may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. Most wrongful death cases involve a recovery for the deceased’s medical expenses, loss of economic support and loss of consortium or loss of emotional support.

Most injury and accident cases are dependent on two factors, the extent of the victim’s injuries and the amount of insurance coverage available. The value of a case is also dependent on your age and if you will require future medical care.

At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, PC, our goal is to maximize the value of each Buffalo, NY  personal injury matter to accommodate the wishes of each client.

The time frame for resolving an injury case will differ considerably for each particular matter. The complexity of the case, the number of defendants involved and the extent of the injury are a few of the factors that may shorten or extend the settlement process.

Most of our straightforward car accident cases are resolved prior to filing a lawsuit in negotiations with an insurance carrier. Most NY wrongful death cases tend to take longer to resolve both due to their complexity as well as the need for court oversight in the distribution of funds from a settlement or verdict.

Our Buffalo, NY personal injury lawyers are mindful of the time constraints that each of our client’s face with their case. In addition to keeping you apprised of the status of your case, we will also respect your decision as to how you wish for us to handle your case from a settlement or litigation perspective.

A claim for pain and suffering can be made to compensate an injured person for physical pain, stress, and emotional trauma related to their accident.
